Amending Contracted Prices

  1. Go to Support > Clients and choose a client.

  5. Import the file back into SIMS using 'Import from Excel' in the grid menu.
  6. The specific item or items will now be updated with the amended price or discount.



IMP: To make changes  to specific items, select all the fields except the replic id when exporting to Excel. If you leave out any of the required fields (see list under 'Fields to Export' below) and import back to SIMS, the original record will remain unchanged and a new record will be created instead.



If you export current contracted prices without the TranNum column and import the file back with changes, the system will create a new record instead of making the change.


How do I delete a record?

There are three ways to delete a record.

Option 1: Highlight the record and use the 'Delete' key on the keyboard.
Option 2: Enter a past date in the 'Date To' field for the item and then click Delete Expired Items. To add the 'Date to', enter the date you require after exporting to Excel, and then import the sheet back to SIMS.

Option 3: Use the 'Range from' and 'Range to' fields to select specific items and then press Delete Current View.
